Emergency Pedagogy Annual Conference in Karlsruhe

War, Ruins, & Traumata

In 2017 the emergency pedagogy annual conference will once again take place in Karlsruhe. From June 9th till 11th of this year, we will focus on the topic of “man made disasters”.
Wars, violence, and natural disasters threaten many—but especially children are affected by the feeling of nowhere being safe. They find it especially difficult to understand and process man-made disasters.

How is the development and lives of children influenced by man-made disasters? How can we prevent these hardships from becoming stress factors which lead to traumata? And how can emergency and trauma pedagogy help to integrate these experiences into one’s biography? We want to explore these questions together.

This year’s speakers are Andreas Müller-Cyran (leader of the crisis intervention team (KIT) and emergency pastoral care in the archdiocese of Munich), Dr. med. Christian Schopper (head doctor of the psychosomatic specialist clinic Sonneneck, Badenweiler), Dr. phil. Dima Zito (trauma therapist, Psychosocial Centre for Refugees Düsseldorf, doctoral thesis about child soldiers), Bernd Ruf (special education and Waldorf pedagogue, school director of the Parzival Centre), and Ralf Willinger (advisor for children’s rights at terre des homes).

Also at this year’s conference a diverse programme made up of exciting lectures and educational workshops is waiting for you! We look forward to your attendance!
